A recent White House memo revealed that Tesla intends to allow non-Tesla electric vehicles access to its Supercharger network in the U.S. by the end of 2022. As part of a limited pilot program, the EV maker has been letting owners of non-Tesla EVs use its Supercharger connectors in several European locations.
The program exceeded expectations and is now coming to North America. Non-Tesla EV customers will need to download the most recent version of Tesla’s smartphone app in order to access the stations if the U.S. version of the pilot program functions the same way as it does in Europe.
Tesla, however, has remained quiet about when non-Tesla EV owners would be permitted to use charging stations in the U.S. The organization has not yet commented on or confirmed this development.
President Joe Biden and Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, have a tense relationship with each other despite Biden’s apparent support of the EV industry. Biden has not mentioned Tesla directly during his plans to increase electrification in the United States. So far, the Superchargers are available in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
